    Rules:
    - Screenshot should be in some way (can be very tenuous) linked to a theme. Otherwise anything goes.
    - You can enter up to 3 screenshots, posted as separate posts. You can delete and replace if you wish.
    - Entries to be submitted by 9pm Friday (GMT).
    - Previous week's winner to decide winner (can't enter themselves).
    - The winner chooses the new theme for next week (and becomes the new judge).

    This week's theme is As they passed in the night and will be judged this week by me, Buynot

    A trio of RF&P EMD F-units lead a manifest on the ACL. A lone photographer captures this rare event as they pass through the night.

    As they say, the early bird gets the worm, and such is the case for these Adriana County GP40-2s on a fine autumn morning.

    Another week has come and gone, and now it's time to present my top 3 picks for this week's contest!
    In P3, we have Craigie-C with their shot of a freight rolling through late into the night. The scene has an almost calming feeling to it.

    In P2, we have IronBladder and their shot of a deer watching a passenger train roll by. While not the most realistic, I do quite enjoy the lighting choices on this one!

    And finally, in P1 we have JGRudnick, with their shot of an A-B-A set of F Units. This one is easily my favorite. The light hitting the engines from the street lamp, the moon in the background, the pinkish/purple sky along the horizon. It all comes together in such a good manner that I just had to pick this one as #1.

    You all had some fantastic shots this week! It was super hard to pick out just three. And with that, I'd like to hand the reigns for this competition over to JGRudnick. I look forward to seeing what theme you'll have in store for us this week!

    Dang, I don't get to compete this week. Ah well, lol. Great shots this week everyone.

    I will post the new thread later today and add a link here once I come up with a theme.
